Notes/Commercial Description:
While playing coffee games last winter, even though they didn’t work for that project, we found ourselves attracted to the bitter lemony notes of cold brewed Ethiopian Yirgacheffe from our partners at Fair Mountain Coffee Roasters. While playing our usual hoppy games recently we were similarly inspired by the lemony bitterness of the new "Lemon Drop" hop from our friends at Hopsteiner. With "SS 2014 Yirgacheffe" we bridge our “Need A Bigger Boat” recipe from 2012 to these flavors with the helping hand of the lemon notes of Sorachi Ace hops. Drink SS 2014 Yirgacheffe (Need A Bigger Boat) because we only turn 3 once.

On tap at the Taphouse Grille, Wayne, NJ.

A - Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of head that recedes quickly. Solid lacing though.

S - Nose seems pretty straightforward. Light roasted coffee with cream and sugar and some lemon.

T - The coffee just explodes in the beginning. Light, smooth coffee. And the bitterness from the coffee transitions beautifully to the hop bitterness. A lot of lemon on the back end. Hop profile reminds me of 077.

M - Creamy feel to it. Moderate carbonation. Very nice.

O - Really solid. Haven't had too many coffee pales other than Peekskill, but this is definitely up there. Everything just works so nicely together. Nothing too dominant. Love it.
